Mobile networks are playing a major key role in including populations in the digital revolution, particularly in developing countries. Asia Pacific is no exception. This region already accounts for half of the world’s unique subscribers and connections and is expected to add 600 million new subscribers by 2020.
Self-Organizing Networks (SON) has grown rapidly among operator communities as they look for cost effective ways to improve overall network capacity, efficiency and quality. As 3G and 4G networks mature, centralized-SON (C-SON) is the ideal solution to give these technologies a new lease of life and boost speeds and coverage. Keep Reading →

Visit Cellwize at LTE World Summit: #MR11.
Amsterdam, June 23, 2014
LTE growth continues apace. Currently, there are over 300 LTE networks with around 250m subscribers globally. And it keeps increasing. As part of their deployment strategy, many mobile operators have adopted an LTE overlay approach. This involves deploying LTE on top of existing 2G and 3G networks. Overlay is regarded as the one of the fastest and arguably, the most cost effective approach to roll out LTE. There is no need to decommission an old network and replace it with a new network, with an overlay there’s only one network to operate, manage and monitor.
